PRLog - May 13, 2011 - LOS OSOS, Calif. -- LOS OSOS, Calif. — Brownells, the world's largest supplier of firearm parts, gunsmithing tools, equipment and accessories, has joined Smith & Wesson and Hogue Inc. as a premier sponsor of the International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts' (ICORE) Annual Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championship.

First held in 1992 with just 51 shooters in attendance, the Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championship celebrates two decades of top level revolver competition this year. Over 200 of the best wheelgun shooters are expected to compete.

“This year marks a major milestone for ICORE and we could not have made it to this point without the generous support of sponsors like Brownells,” said Ron Joslin of ICORE.

“Brownells, and the Brownell family, have always supported the shooting sports, both through sponsorships like this one, and as industry leaders working to expand shooting opportunities throughout the country. We're proud to again partner with Brownells to bring together the best revolver shooters around.”

The 20th Annual Smith & Wesson International Revolver Championship take place June 2-5 and are hosted by the San Luis Obispo Sportsmen’s Association. The match will take place on the association's Hogue Action Pistol Range, named after the family-owned company located in nearby Paso Robles, Calif.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be able to help with this premier event again this year,” said Frank Brownell, CEO of Brownells, “with partners like ICORE and Smith & Wesson, plus a whole darn lot of great shooters, it’s bound to be one heck of a good match.”
